Busting Data Management Myths
Mythology is a crucial component of culture. As time passes, groups create collections of tales they tell to explain their world and their ways. Often, through embellishment and exaggeration, the tales are wrapped in warnings and warped by whimsy. What remains is often laced with fantasy, rich with both confusion and concern.

Technology workers have been known to partake in myth-making from time to time. As new technologies emerge, their narrative often becomes a tapestry of both fact and fiction. One key area, rich with mythology, is the discipline of data management. Because of the alarming rate of data growth in the past decade, data management myths have been created and dispersed at an alarming rate.

At Informatica, we deal daily in the robust realities of data management. For this reason, we plans share key data myths we often encounter at Informatica World 2016, in our keynotes, breakouts and demos. Over the course of the conference, we will explore several pervasive myths about data that come up in our conversations. And we just may “bust” the following types of data management myths along the way:

1) Big Data Myths
2) Cloud Data Myths
3) Data Security Myths
4) Master Data Management Myths

Adam Savage to Keynote #INFA16
As we examine the validity of each claim, our aim will be to untangle key insights from within layers of lore.

Ultimately, our journey will lead up to an Informatica World 2016 keynote by Adam Savage, Co-host of the Discovery Channel’s television series MythBusters.

So we invite you to join us on this journey, as we silence the whispers of worry. Together, we’ll lay a foundation of facts, leading to a tower of triumph. To register for Informatica World, click here: http://infa.media/INFA16reg

    Master Data Management Myths – The myth that there have been master data management successes.

    I would like to find one example where the non-technical staff across an organization claim that they no longer have problems with master data. The key word is across the organization. One-of solutions e.g. one department, one application such as data warehouse do seem to have occurred but I have not seen or heard of an enterprise wide sustainable success.
